I see the light. But what is it? – brief notes
November 13, 2007
I thought this painting would be a good start as far as “getting” my artwork “out there”
It is an acrylic painting with certain semi-recognisable elements, however, a focal point that is totally non-representational. This begs the question being asked in the title of the work. I see the light. But what is it?
What is the essence of God?
In a Christian context it is light. In a Buddhist context there is no concept of god but Shunyata, “Emptiness”or “Voidness”. The sky is seen as a metaphor for the Shunyata
Is it possible to understand the nature of God? If God is only light are we to be curators of light or are we light?
How can we fathom emptiness? Are we – and if not, how are we to be – enlightened?
